From The Charlotte Observer By Steve Harrison and Maria David, Friday, Nov. 25, 2011

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police made two arrests Friday in the Thursday night shooting death of Justin Glenn, who was killed in what police said was a drug deal gone sour.

Glenn, 22, was shot just after 10:30 p.m. on Ambassador Street, near Tuckaseegee and Berryhill Roads.

Police arrested Zamario Delandro Blakeney, 20, and Lakeem Roamele Baker, 19, for Glenn’s murder.

Police had said that they believed the victim and suspects knew each other, and had met to conduct a drug transaction. A dispute ensued, and the victim was shot.

Baker, of Bennettsville, S.C., has four pending charges against him, including weapons possession. Blakeney has been found guilty of a number of charges, including breaking and entering, marijuana possession and common law robbery.

Glenn had been found guilty of marijuana possession last year.
